Where To Get This Card: Card Pack 1 and Default


"Sidney George Reilly, known as the Ace of Spies, was one of the most talented spies that the British ever had. He was so secretive that no one is exactly sure where he was born, what his real name was, or what his true activities were during his lifetime. He is rumored to have stolen weapons plans in Germany, defense plans in China, and hatched a plot to kill the Russian leader Vladimir Lenin. In fact, all his travels and secret dealings made him a highly effective Clue hunter for the Lucian branch. Unfortunately, Reilly was caught on the Russian border in 1925, thrown into a Moscow jail, and then killed. No one is sure who really got to him--the Russians or the other Cahill branches."
